The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation provides college scholarships to eligible students from Dallas, Denton & Collin counties as well as a variety of specialty scholarships. High school seniors, undergraduate and graduate students of any and all faiths are encouraged to apply. Close to 50 college scholarships are awarded each year based on financial need, academic merit, involvement in extracurricular activities and/or community service. Scholarships range from $500.00 to $7,500.00 and most allow study at the college or university of the recipient's choice. In addition to general scholarships, there are specific scholarships for those studying the following fields; medicine, law, education, fashion merchandising, and Jewish studies. There are also scholarships for students at the University of Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Southern Methodist University. One universal scholarship application is needed for the myriad of scholarships since questions are designed to allow each applicant to be considered for every scholarship for which he/she may be eligible.
The scholarships were created by individuals or organizations who have established endowment funds (funds that continue forever) at the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation because they care deeply about helping students attend college. The application process begins every fall. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back in the fall for the full list of due dates.
